Actually, the characters that I remembered most were Mother Brain's henchmen Eggplant Wizard and King Hippo. They were your typical mentally challenged underlings but somehow the shows creators managed to infuse them with enough charm and uniqueness that people still remember them two decades later. It's the small things like Hippo and Wizard that set this series apart. Captain N is definitely more than the sum of its parts. I'm not sure if Captain N would fall under the category of cult classic but it certainly says something that people still talk about the series this long after the show went off the air and there even exists a handful of websites devoted to Captain N that look as if some actual effort was put into them.
When it gets right down to it Captain N is going to be vastly more appealing to that certain segment of society that grew up playing the original NES system and watched cartoons in the late 80's early 90's. For instance, unless you've actually played Paperboy the episode `The Invasion of the Paper Pedalers' isn't going to have much meaning. On the other hand I never played Bayou Billy or Puss N' Boots but still enjoyed those episodes. The DVD special features are barely worth mentioning but in the end I don't regret getting this collection one bit. I just happen to fit the target demographic perfectly. In the end you get every episode that matters for a very reasonable price. At 9 ½ hours it's quite a bit of bang for your buck.
I gave this to someone from Washington D.C. and never saw it again so don't expect any updated review about the picture quality or the special features. No one really watches those things on these type of DVD's anyways - let's not kid ourselves.
The only problems I find w/ the dvd set is: all the episodes are not there, an episode is edited heavily, cutting out 2 useful minutes of dialogue and action, and, lastly, an episode version or two of certain episodes are also missing. Now, don't get me wrong. I love Captain N, but I wanted it in all of its full glory so I can die happy. Nonetheless, the series is still pristine, with loads of extras and great quality for the most part. I'll just have to wait for more DVDs of the series, if any. In the meantime, I'll deal w/ what I have and enjoy it to its greatest degree. Hopefully, the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog DVD set, when it comes out, won't disappoint either.
